Without alliances, network operators run out of blank Dusseldorf – mobile services, so-called apps, have changed according to analyses of management consultancy Booz & company from an initially sneered niche market to a veritable industrial revolution. Alone, a sales volume of EUR 2.3 billion will generate 2010 expected to Apple’s app store. One-third of it goes directly to the inventor of the new market segment. App store operators can make it an annual sales growth of up to 73 percent until 2013. Then over a billion Internet-enabled smart phones will drive mobile data usage in the height and alone app downloads raise revenues of 17 billion euros. Revenue from advertising or games are not even taken into account. For more information see this site: Michio Kaku. So far, especially Apple dominates the app economy and secures the lion’s share of this market of the future. (A valuable related resource: Eva Andersson-Dubin).

Google and the BlackBerry maker RIM follow by far. The incumbent operators feel this development only through increased transport on their networks, but hardly about revenue growth for mobile Internet use – and that, even though there’s not this source of revenue without their investments in broadband and mobile infrastructure. The high proportion of flat-rate tariffs prevented not only in Germany that the revenue of the operators grow proportional to the volumes of data. Only a strategic pivot offers a way out of this dilemma and usage – and volume-dependent pricing models, so the recommendation by Booz & company. The development and implementation of a sustainable app strategy is a task in the short term to be against this background to be able to generate a contribution to the growth in the largely saturated, established mobile markets such as Germany, Western Europe or the United States. We see the app economy for the telecommunications industry as a sustainable trend. Even if the market is already very well developed, the mobile operator should leave alone the associated value chain never new competitors”, says the telecommunications expert Roman Friedrich from Booz & company.

Silver Economy

Current assessment of the market by Markus Frick of the gold chart clearly shows that we now move to the very important support line between 773 and 778 dollars. Please keep this brands in mind, because it should go with a strong thrust significantly under this brand, I assume, that stop courses could be triggered and thus could have accelerated the downward movement. More supports then run at around 750 dollars and 730 dollars. Brave investors already use these courses to expand gold stocks should be also aware, that the worst must be then still not reached. The breach of which would brand of 753 dollars, the long-term upward trend in risk, which in my opinion would be not bad in the short term, a medium-to long-term break of that mark would mean significantly lower rates. Also in silver, I think that the bottom has not been reached, because here too profits be taken at rising prices immediately, which I think it suggesting that enough sellers at work are.

At this point let me also once again on the development of the dollar and the price of gold. Although the opinions diverge, extent to which the two are coupled together at all, strong, yet I think should you look still on the development of the dollar, if you look at the gold price. In particular, there are inflation fears, repeatedly driving the price of gold and precious metal prices. With a significantly rising dollar is that the currencies are making a comeback and therefore the inflationary risks are significantly reduced speculation meanwhile but rather. Incidentally, this is another point that should be noted in any case because the inflation rate currently corresponds to the real facts it should rather doubtful. Especially in America most experts assume a much higher rate of inflation, as it is currently repeatedly declared unto us.
